Here’s how Patrick describes it:
What is enough?
Enough is a very personal metric. Like our center of gravity, each of us must find what is enough by swaying from less to more until a comfortable medium is found.
The goal, then, is not to find what is, or will be, enough forever. That is impossible. The goal is to discover the tools and strategies you need to find what is enough for you right now and provide the flexibility to adjust as the conditions change.
The series of essays in this book explore many of the ideas and strategies needed to meet this goal.
It’s a lovely book. Patrick is one of my favorite writers, because he doesn’t simply write about technology—he writes about how we should live, and technology only plays a role in it.
